Tech has more of an exclusion problem than a culture problem
from Tech Crunch
The tech industry's diversity problems are exacerbated by its obsession with genius coders and brilliant founders, Carissa Romero, a partner at the diversity consulting startup Paradigm, said recently at TechCrunch Disrupt NY. Romero, who took part in a panel of diversity advocates, said that the mentality that geniuses are born rather than created through experience and practice can be alienating for people who don't fit the stereotype of the average tech worker: Young, white, straight male, probably rocking a hoodie.
